Manchester United Methodist Church presented its 23rd Annual Servant Award last month to Sandy and Chuck King.

The Kings, renowned bakers, are generous in providing baked goods for church events. While her husband was busy baking seven days a week, Sandy faithfully attended church most Sunday mornings for the 56 years they have been members and through the years has served on many committees – evangelism, worship, trustees, finance, parsonage, missions & evangelism, pastor-parish, lay leadership, outreach, memorial, and nurture/membership. She also served as financial secretary, communion chairperson, greeter chairperson and a communion steward. A few years ago, Sandy took on the job of Christmas in the Village chairperson. Currently, she is the president of the United Methodist Women, volunteers for Senior Meals at Emanuel UCC, and quite often helps with coffee hour clean up. At the present time, she is serving on the Outreach, Worship and Memorial teams. Her creative ideas and willingness to help make her a valuable addition to these teams.

Once Chuck retired from the bakery, he began attending worship with Sandy and has also become very involved in the life of the church. He was head usher for a couple of years and still helps with ushering on many Sunday mornings. He is the certified Serve-Safe person for kitchen events and has served in that capacity for about seven years now. He frequently cleans the coffee maker to prevent ‘overflowing’ coffee. Chuck is also involved in United Methodist Men. Wherever and whenever there is a need, he is right there to lend a helping hand.

The Kings were presented the award on April 30th in recognition of their dedication, steadfastness, love and devotion to the Manchester United Methodist Church.
